and the huffington post's d howard. with just over a month to go for mitt romney, given the polls, the debates may be it. it could change the narrative that has dogged him or cemented. romney has the same urgent must-do list that he at the republican convention. only now could be his last chance. today we're going to look at romney's career, back at his career, at some missteps in past debates and also at some gems from barack obama. first up, first on romney's must-do list, get likable. and avoid this kind of reaction when governor rick perry charged that romney had hired illegal lawn workers. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. i'm speaking. you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here. is that i get 60 seconds. and you get -- >> but the american people want the truth. they want -- >> i understand -- >> you say that you knew you had illegals. >> would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? are you going to let me finish with what i have to say? >> i don't know what it means for the referee for help, but there he was going anderson cooper. chris: what happens if
for root.com and sam stein, political rorter for "the huffington post." great to have both of you with us. keli, you first. how offensive is this? imeg reasng is it has to respond to? >> well, i'd say on a scale of 1 to 10, we're heading into, like, 20 territory, ed. i think at a certain point this stepcande ese ert any candidate do to not get support? right? like, i think at this point we have to start having a competition just to see where the lineof offensiveness, how far we can push these boundaries. apparently making rape jokes esn'do it, makg mini cments doesn't do it. maybe somebody has to drop the "n" bomb, but with rick per re and the rock thing. >> sam, how does he overcome this? >> i don't think he does. todd akin should have a rule he shouldn't speak about women or women's issues because it causes him more proems than it's worth. obviously missouri is a conservative state, or trending conservative. it's not going to vote for president obama like it did. claire mccaskill has always been in a dog fight with respect to the senate race. u know, if some respects if i were the nrsc,
for "the huffington post," sam stein, contributor to "newsweek" and "the daily beast," mark mckinnon and executive editor of bloomburg news, the nostradamus of major league baseball, al hunt! mike barnicle is in new york along with tv's own willie geist. let's set this up. april 7th. 2011? >> yes. >> alfred hunt. i don't know if it's alfred. >> albert. >> albert hunt comes on this show and predicts what? >> the washington nationals are going to the world series. that's the good news. the bad news i said 2013. >> right. >> a little ahead of schedule. >> but they this year proved me wrong by a year, but you know something? most of the people on the show, particularly mr. stein, condescending, they had him in there since 1933. >> i kept my mouth shut. >> you did, joe. you were polite, as always. >> as a red sox fan, it's a damn good thing i did. sam stein -- >> yes. >> -- an ugly year. an ugly year for the red sox. >> yeah, it wasn't our best year. >> mike barnicle, ugly, baby. >> they can't even beat the yankees. >> we're glad the season is over. you put up your shutters in mid-j
is not a straight news journalist. take a look at "huffington post." they write, mitt romney wonders why anne romney's airplane windows don't roll down. yahoo, why plane windows don't roll down as romney would like. you tell me if there is a bias against mitt romney. >> they played off the maddow mocking moment. i think if you look at the main streams media which i think is more biased i can remember on these issues, the media has been really quick to decide that this is the end of the mitt romney campaign, 40 days out. and to just start sewing up that coffin. and failed to look at history. in 2000, george w. bush before going into the debates was 8 points down. so it's not a done deal. secondly the media loves to trumpet the mitt romney gaffes or mistakes or misstatement. of course, we haven't stopped hearing about the 47% remark. yet moment when obama says things like, you didn't build it if you built this business, you didn't build it, the media trumpets or takes on the white house talking points and claims that it was taken out of con detective by his critics. if you look at what he said it wasn

is another example of what i think journalists should try to avoid. this is the original "huffington post" story. it is about harry reid saying mitt romney has not paid taxes in 10 years. it was unsupported here say from one anonymous source. there is no evidence that is verifiable to support this claim. if you read the story, it is narrating the claim in a very correct way. it is only much later that the journalist gets around to mentioning that the claim is impossible to verify. i have highlighted that here in green to visually highlight how much of the story is repeating a false claim and how little is pointing up the problems. let me give you a contrast i think is a better approach. here is a story. it is a day two or dates 3 story. it is about the debate and contest and let about -- less about the specific charges. it is worth noting in green how much of the story is emphasizing the truth and calling into question the claim. we cannot say what romney did or did not do on his tax returns. but there is no verifiable evidence on the table to support harry reid's claim. the story was tha
to me -- perhaps i can lay it on my own children because i am not sending items to "the huffington post" and elsewhere to explain that when the auto industry ran into trouble, it cut $80 billion in roughly six months. the financial -- it received $80 billion dollars in roughly six months. how big is the sector that produces young adults? can you imagine an economy without young adults? if you want to spend in this economy, the young at sector, you never produces your cars. the auto sector. you know that the financial sector handles your accounts. you know who produces the food on your table. that is our cultural sector. autos is 1.5%. finance is 7.5%. how big is the young adult sector? 10.5%. it is without doubt the most important. depending on how you look at it, it is the largest sector in the economy. it is labor-intensive. you spend money in that sector, you will create jobs. you cannot imagine an economy without young adults. you know you have to invest in them. all of you know the returns on investing in kids. i will not go back through that. what i will say is that we as a commun
